Free Crochet Pattern: Breeze Blocker

Shown in Bernat Softee Chunky ForestPumpkinSoft Taupe & Wine
Each color section was about 26 rows each and this breeze blocker fits a door 31.5" wide.

We live in a very old home (built in 1875) and lately we've had some very cold, breezy days here in Wisconsin. On these frigid days when the wind is blowing you can feel a breeze blowing in under the doors and we usually shove a towel or blanket by the door to block it. Well, after 10 years of living here I thought it was about time we have something slightly prettier to block that darned breeze! This is a very simple pattern but it gets the job done!

Thanks for stopping by!

Skill Level: Easy

Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn, approx. 225-250 yards
Size K (6.50mm) Crochet Hook
Tapestry Needle

Stitch Abbreviations (US Terms):

Ch - Chain
Sc - Single Crochet
Sc2tog - Single Crochet 2 Together
Sl St - Slip Stitch

-Joins are made with sl st.
-Ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
-Sc2tog counts as one sc.

Gauge: 3 sc & 3 rows = 1"

Row 1: Magic circle, ch 1, 6 sc in circle. Join. (6 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each around. Join. (12 sc)
Row 3: Ch 1, *sc, 2 sc in next.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (18 sc)
Row 4: In BLO: Ch 1, sc in each around. Join. (18 sc)
Row 5: Ch 1, sc in each around. Do not join, instead work an sc in the first sc from this row and you will now be working in the round. (18 sc)

If you haven't already, sew in your beginning end.

Continue working around and around until you have the correct length for your door, also be sure you are stuffing as you go. When your breeze blocker is to the desired length continue on below.

To finish off:
Row 1: Sc around, sl st in last space.
Row 2: Ch 1. In BLO: *sc, sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (12 sc)

Fasten off leaving a long end sew hole shut and sew in end.
